    Behind the gates of a fabulous Hampton estate, FBI Special Agent Pendergast discovers the carnage of a gruesome crime, a nightmare of seemingly supernatural origin. The smoldering remains of infamous art critic Jeremy Grove, a melted cross branding his chest, are found in a locked, barricaded attic. The hoofprint singed into the floorboards and the smell of brimstone recall the legendary horrors that befall those who make a pact with the Devil.

    Overall

    I love this series but, this audiobook completely
    wiped out major parts of the book. I will not buy an abridged book again and certainly not in this series. All the charachters are woven together and help continue the plot to it conclusion.

    As Richard fought to focus his mind on his need to remain conscious, the breathless voices sounded to him as if they were coming from some great, dim distance. He wasn't sure who they were. He knew that he knew them, but right then it just didn't seem to matter. He struggled to put voice to his burning concern, but he couldn't form the words, couldn't get out any more than a gasping moan.

    What disappointed you about Chainfire?

    For 3 out of the 4 parts of this audio book the story is sooooo redundant. The same story line stated over and over and over. If I boiled all the new plot down it would take up 1 page. Very Disappointed.

    The veil to the underworld has been torn, and Rahl, from beyond the veil, begins to summon a sinister power more dreadful than any he has wielded before. Horrifying creatures escape through the torn veil, wreaking havoc on the unsuspecting world above.

    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    Don't use mechanical voices. This clearly was not read by a person. The inflections and pronunciation is electronic. I could have this read by my Kindle Reader.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    Terrible - This couldnt possibly be a human reading this without aid of some mechanical device. The cadence, pronunciation, inflection and whole sentance is not human but is mechanical interjected. I could have had Kindle electronic voice read this book to me.
    'I will not buy a book with this "Narrator" again. It destryed the books


    Any additional comments?

    I have read the hard cover books of this series and I am extremely disppointed with this so called "Narrator" I wont buyAudible books like this again.
